Ummm, I think part of that's the flash and then the iridescence making him look a mite pale. He's a feisty little cuss.

Ah ok. Yeah i raised some feisty ones. i was cleaning the runt tank today and one of the girls kept nibbling on my hand. Not just the end of my finger, but like the middle of my palm.

The runts also ate a cucumber slice i put in there for my snails. Overnight.

OK, feisty and ravenous! I stand corrected. Maybe they're vegetarians!!

Almost forgot my weekly log post. Not much change, finally starting to see colors settling out. Most look like one parent or the other, with a small percentage being mixed.

They're fighting a little more. May have to separate them soon, at least the big ones. It looks like a dance contest when i change the water.

They loooooove glassworms. Had some entertainment as i barely chopped them up at all this time there were a few instances in the runt tank of a tug-of-war over a worm.

Also 6 more have arrived safe at their new home. :)

Probably putting some up on Aquabid on Monday.

I put an approximate stock list up in the classified post.

Here's 3 getting ready to go to their new home... guess which one has the male in it.

They're productive little bubble nesters, aren't they?! Percival almost always has one in his bowl.

His permanent tank FINALLY cycled so he moves in tomorrow, wonder what he's gonna say about this.

my 2 have names, even though they haven't even been shipped yet. My 8 year old stared at the pictures this morning. Princess & Ruby.

Me too! I also named my boy before he arrived.

Please post pics once they arrive and are settled.

I don't know if you've ever gotten fish in the mail before, I hadn't and was a little concerned because little Percival wasn't really interested in eating the first day or so. Now he's a ravenous little devil who stalks and pounces on anything that drops into his tank.

I picked up some frozen brine shrimp as a special treat and he was a little put off at first, but once he figured it out he was happy to hunt them down.
